The Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a scavenger hunt in the parks! The scavenger hunt is free, designed for kids under the age of 16, and takes place from Tuesday, October 13 to Sunday, October 18.

"As the season changes to fall, and families continue to practice social distancing, we recognized the need for a fun and safe outdoor activity," said Kelsey Bocken, Recreation and Events Manager for the City of Council Bluffs.
